Committed To Finding The Best Route To Your Divorce
All attorneys aim to deliver a legal result to their clients. Pride Law helps clients develop and work toward their individual goals to best meet their needs and the needs of their families as they move forward after a divorce, and into the future.
Since 1999, Elisabeth Pride has helped hundreds of family law clients in Pittsburgh, Mt. Lebanon and the surrounding communities develop and pursue goals beyond acquiring assets or “winning” custody in court. At Pride Law, we help our clients visualize how they want their lives to be in the future, and to develop creative strategies to meet their long-term goals.
“When possible, I help my clients resolve their family law matters out of court, and we offer a number of process options to make this happen. This approach can potentially save both sides time and effort, and it gives clients more control over their futures than they would have in a court process.” — Attorney Elisabeth Pride
Using Collaboration And Mediation To Give Clients Control Of The Outcome
There are times when it is impossible to negotiate a divorce or other family dispute.
The other party may be unable or unwilling to cooperate, or the issues may be truly irreconcilable. At these times, an experienced trial attorney can be a family law client’s best advocate. My years as a trial lawyer trained me to skillfully and steadfastly pursue my clients’ goals in court when settling is not an option.
However, although the adversarial approach of court litigation may be the only viable option for some family law clients, I believe that collaborative law, mediation and client-driven settlements usually provide more satisfying results in divorce and custody matters.
Rather than powering through a legal obstacle without concern for the consequences, collaboration and mediation offer a means to overcome those obstacles creatively, even cooperatively. In many cases, family dynamics can be preserved or even improved by a careful approach to dispute resolution.
